Yesterday, I was cleaning the Bathroom, just finshed cleaning the sink, then I started on the toilet area as I bent down a little my legs started shaking uncontrollably (sp?), confused I stood straight up, it stopped, I moved again then it happened again, I felt like maybe I was going to faint, so I layed down, legs felt numb but weren't shaking.
This has never happened before, this lasted about 10min total., I've been having a slight headache this week, not sure if this is related. I've been loosing lots of hair too, yesterday I just fixed my hair, whole bunch of strands came out, have alot of loose strands on clothes too. 
Has this happened to anyone one?

Hey Syl,
Oh.  That doesn't sound good.  I wonder if you pinched a nerve or something when you bent down? I might consider contacting your doctor about this.  Especially if it happens again.  The headache thing is something to address too.....

I'm experiencing the same thing now but with my arms. Haven't gone to the doc yet because I have been waiting to see if it goes away. It has been going on off and on for about 2 weeks now. Some days worse than others. Since my arms and hands were related I immediate thought carpal tunnel, but never had any symptoms before. Keep us posted.
